A sparkling mainstay of Manhattan nightlife, Daryl Sherman has been a fixture playing and singing for savvy New Yorkers, international visitors and dignitaries at the Waldorf Astoria’s famed Cole Porter Steinway. Equally at home in the worlds of jazz and cabaret, Sherman’s many recordings have received critical praise and airplay internationally. They are in regular rotation on Cable TV’s Music Choice and XM Radio. From her arrival in the mid-70s, with trio stints at Sinatra hang-outs like Jilly’s, Jimmy Weston’s or Eddie Condon’s, there’s hardly a jazz joint, supper club or hotel Daryl has missed.
She’s recently lauded for shows at the Algonquin’s Oak Room, Dizzy’s Coca Cola, Iridium Jazz Club and Feinstein’s At The Regency. Appearances with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra included workshops for their Essentially Ellington program. Joining forces with Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks, their Park Avenue Whirl had a month’s run at 59E59 Theater and later Feinstein’s. European tours include annual engagements at London’s Pizza On The Park, Pizza Express Soho, concerts in Wales, Leeds, Scotland, the Cork Jazz Festival in Ireland, Holland and Malaga, Spain. Her stunning return appearance in Berlin was hailed by Jazz Radio 101.9 “a magical night.” Her CD tribute to Richard Rodgers, A Hundred Million Miracles (Arbors) with Ruby Braff received four stars in Downbeat. Guess Who’s In Town is included in The New Yorker 10 Best of 2006 and a recent tribute to the Crescent City, New O’Leans has been cited by BBC Radio as “superlative, one of this delightful singer’s best.” Jeepers Creepers, a centennial tribute to Johnny Mercer will be released in June. Other notables Daryl has performed and recorded with include Dick Hyman, Dave McKenna, Bucky & John Pizzarelli, Bob Dorough, Kenny Davern, Houston Person, Harry Allen, Tommy Flanagan, Ken Peplowski, Warren Vache, Joe Cohn, Jay Leonhart, Dick Sudhalter, James Chirillo, and Boots Maleson.
